VETO OVERRIDE FIZZLES

ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE LEGISLATION!

 

Friday July 1, 2016:

 

Thanks to the efforts of gun owners, a scheduled vote to override Governor Christie’s veto of S805 / A1211 was abandoned by the legislature on June 30th.  Rather than face an embarrassing public defeat due to insufficient votes to override, the attempt to overturn Governor Christie’s veto was abandoned (for now). The so-called “domestic violence” legislation would have failed to harshly punish violent offenders and instead would have harassed and redundantly regulated gun owners.  More background information on this legislation is available here. 

 

Although the legislature could take up the override vote again at any time, that appears unlikely given news reports that the legislature is now considering drafting an entirely different bill.

 

Thank you for your efforts on this legislation, which made a difference in the outcome.
